The goal of the workshop is to advance the evaluation for medical use of extended reality (XR) devices -- such as AR and VR -- and identify barriers to their innovation and implementation, the FDA said in a recent statement. The agency's overarching vision for the meeting is to accelerate the development of safe and effective medical extended reality devices, ultimately to benefit patients.
A preliminary agenda for the workshop is set to include talks by experts in the field, including radiologist Dr. Dimitri Amiras of Imperial College Healthcare in the U.K.; computer scientist Nassir Navab, PhD, from Johns Hopkins University; and Dr. Brennan Spiegel from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Major tech companies such as Microsoft, Sony, LG Electronics, and Philips Healthcare will also deliver presentations.
The meeting is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis and will take place at the FDA headquarters in Silver Spring, MD.
